If you aren't wearing a jacket, I'd go with the oxford. Oxford cloth will match the casualness of wearing slacks without a jacket. Otherwise, you risk (not that anybody would notice) looking like you've misplaced your coat and tie.

eqcitizen and Harvey -

Thanks for the advice! I will check it out. I was a bit embarrassed to be asking since I am usually the one giving advice, but I've never had any metal issue before. And foo says that there is no reciprocity and advice from senior members.

3 questions:

1. (F)ugly?
2. What is the style?
3. Appropriate as smart casual office?

Here it is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/190788438813?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

 

It was on sale for 101 but I'd only offer him 90 because I'd have to ask my tailor to bring it in extra because of the larger jacket waist.

Depends on the leather. I have Brunello Cucinelli leather jacket made from very supple and light leather. AND, its reversible with nylon as the second outer. So I would look for 1) fine leather, 2) reversible jackets.

  1. Yes, fugly.
  2. The style is "abomination chic"
  3. Appropriate only for burning.

More seriously--there are so many things wrong with this I don't even know where to start. Let me try:

  1. Five buttons. Really?
  2. Peak lapels on a very casual fabric and pattern. It can't decide if it is formal or country.
  3. That ticket pocket is practically in the armpit of the jacket.

Are there any recommendations on wool trousers that are under 100 dollars?

Thanks for your feed.

Its by Boglioli though, the brand much welcomed here for its 'deconstructed' sport coats. So I was thinking may be since it Bogli, it has a right to be worn.

Fair enough, but just because the manufacturer is reasonably well regarded doesn't mean everything they make is up to scratch. I'm sure Boglioli makes some good stuff, but this clearly isn't part of that, regardless of build quality.

That's about right for BB, they are often cut a little bigger. A good suit though. Enjoy in good health.

I'm looking for insight on where to purchase an off the rack suit for a short man that finds a 36S too large? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Would you say that the 1818 line(other than madison) are cut relatively bigger too? I never got a change to try on a milano, but I did bring in the fitz at least 1.5"(brought it in 2.5", then cut some, though I'm uncertain to how much)

Unfortunately, you are mostly going to have to find sales to hit that mark if you want decent wool (flannel, worsted or the like) pants (unless of course you want something that isnt the greatest quality in the world. If that is so check out any mall brand store - banana, gap etc.). Luckily most places are having sales on wool pants now so you should hit it about right.

 

Hickey Freeman has some nice wool pants and I frequently find them on Sierra Trading Post for around $100 (with their deal flyer coupons). Also you can check the usual places, brooks brothers (which has frequent sales that put them right at or slightly above the $100 mark, http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Dress-Trousers/1528,default,sc.html?lid=leftnav-menu), or ralph lauren (http://www.ralphlauren.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=1766319&view=99&cp=2943767&ab=ln_nodivision_cs7_pants)t. Also JCrew usually has wool pants (when in season) that are pretty decent for the money. 

I also have heard good things about Luxire's newly started pant program. Most MTM pants are right at the $100 mark (http://luxire.com/collections/pants). I haven't tried them myself but check out this thread and see for yourself what others have said (http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/1140_30)

If you cannot alter a 36s to fit you by a tailor you are probably going to have to look into "boys" or "Kids" sizes. Both Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers sell them. Down side is that you should go into the store and go into the boys section to get fitted; upside is that it is definitely cheaper. A friend of mine is a smaller gentleman and he bought a suit from brooks brothers kids for a wedding he was in (everyone else was wearing the same suit from the regular brooks brothers, so he was forced to) But now It fits him like a glove and he looks great in it.

post #20400 of 30148

Are there any recommendations on affordable logo-less cotton V-neck jumpers/sweaters of a higher quality than H&M or similar brands, preferably in size XS or a small S? I am fine with online shopping as long as the shipping costs are not too high.
